Bring these Picnic Wines with You
Summer is here and—like you—we get really excited to spend entire afternoons sipping picnic wines in the park, enjoying something refreshing and cool and delicious. For these long, hot days, you’ll want to bring a bottle of wine (or five) that isn’t too overwhelming—think clean whites, crisp rosés, soft sparklers, and juicy-fruited reds. Also, really important: It’s gotta pair with all the cheese and charcuterie you bring along. But where to start? We asked our super-knowledgeable crew for their favorite picnic wines and their top wine choices for day drinking. Here are their picks:
A round and tropical-fruited Chardonnay.
Spice notes abound in this Tasmanian sparkler.
A classically clean Austrian white wine.
Expect yellow fruit and minerals in this Italian white.
A Georgian white that’s light and crisp.
An Italian red that’s delicate and with vibrant fruit.
A fresh and balanced Provence rosé.
Ripe, pure red fruits are on display in this Pinot.
A tart Slovenian sparkler with salty citrus fruit.
A fresh and fun French Cinsault.
